Fob t,ik ORACLE. 
- I 




THE profanation of the Sabbath, in 
this section of our country, has become 
a subjact of decfi lamentation to the 
friends or ordd and region. There is 
a seriousness in this fact which claims 
the attention of society ar.d the church. 
O' sweiety in distinction fi um the chord), 
because a disregard of the Sabbath )3 
«h< violation of civil law, and conse- 
qu !y of social obligation. Of tne 
chur 1, in distinction from society because 
5t U ■ . c violation of divine law, and cou- 
-ac i'l'r'y, of religious obligation. 

Tli . the Sabbath is to be observed, 
Sq this [art of our country, admin of 
no lispn, since the Legislature, by e- 
nacrtng laws for its observation, has 
gi.en a decision upon the duty of citi- 
ae ,s in relation to this subject, which

fa the perfui mance. Did we live in a 
more southcri latitude, Where such laws 
do not exist, : gumems sufficient, from 
scripture and *au experience, might be 
adduced, for th mmediate enaction ni 
them. But, wp '.ike it as a position 
granted, that the Sabbath is to be ob- 
served ; we take it also as a position 
gr uted, thai the Ji'-st day of the week 
is [he Christian Sabbath. 

Slv uld any contend that the obliga- 
tions :mposed by virtue of the fourth 
co mi andment] to keep the Sabbath 
" fiily," ceased at the commencement of 
tho iirisuan dispensation, because the 
la*'- day of the week ceased to be ob- 
served, he only discovers his inattention 
to !-• fourth commaodnaeot ; for, in that 
co-nnmdment. which most be acknowl- 
od. .1 to exist in all its force while the 
m ' al law remains obligatory, i he Sub 
bath i3 Vailed " the M'venth day" in re- 
ference to the six d .ys of labou< which 
precede, and not in reference to the 
la* day oF the wesk. Should any con- 
t8 i thai tbo fourth commandment is 
IlOi obligatory, because ihe ceremonial 
law is *■ abrogated, his conclusion would 
be as much without foundation in reason 
as in scripture. 

But, what is implied in the observa- 
tion of the Sabbatn ? Co observe the 
Sabbath is to neglect all worldly em- 
ployment bith of labour and amusement, 
and to spend the day m private, social, 
an -I public cxercisas jf religion. 

Although in view of God, the Sab- 
,bath is profaned as well by neglecting; 
th= exercises of rel'uion, as by engag- 
ing in the customary business and plea- 
sures of the world, it is with the lam 
otilv of these ovils that civil luw and so- 
ciety can, With propriety interfere. 

Th« laws, relating ti the Sabbath 
should be executed, because tliey exist. 
Cmvince a depraved community, 
ths laws by which that community is 
held i« existence may be violated, when- 
ever the sin of violating then becomes 
j'.l.'v tnablc, and society is laid in ruins. 
Pijty and patriotism, in individual in- 
stances, may weep on the ashes, but they 
caiiot redeem from desolation. Now, 
what his a more powerful tendency to 
produce this conviction in a community,

to neglect the faithful execution of the 


The laws relating to the Sabbath 
sh mid exist) because they are salutary. 
Experience lias testified, that where the 
Sa lijii' i is strictly obseived, the educa- 
tioa ofchildren also is a great subject 
of attention, and the plain inference is,

persecution j but these words, let it be 
remembered, have become mere breath 
in the mouths of wicked men, to blow 
up the fire of popular prejudice. 1 

The christian and patriot cannot be 
terrified from duty, by mere words,— 
Their stability must be more fowficu by 
principles, and their perseverance in 
good deeds, more invincible to attack- 

To a man with his eyes open, it has 
become notorious, that our public roads

It is acknowledged by all, that there 
is 'in intimate coonectton between the 
edaeation of the rising generation and 
the utur-j prosoects of society. Hence 
go i ito those towns and societies where 
the Sabbath has been strictlij obicrved 
and tho education of youth has been held 
sac"d for generations, and you find the 
inhi^iitants intelligent, social, peaceful, 
an I nappy. If these things he sn, who 
•an feel indifferent to the subject under 
dia- Mston ? 

** Siit, society comes with her simn ; 
int:rrogatory, what shall be done ? Our 
anther is plain, the laws whicli exist, 
mu ; . ba put in execution. During the 
condnutnee of the Sabbath then, stop 
the mii of buiimns. He can have n 
reasonable excuse for labour; and if so, 
con*i>>cc him, by the exercise of proptn 
autiiortty, that the laws and interests of 
society are not to bo surrendered to th< 
will if an individual. Convince him 
that piety is not to be interrupted in d - 
votion, and our religious assemblies arc 
not to be disturbed. He may, perhaps, 

and the relo. 
Hiatioil is, at once, effected; 

But, ihe violation of the Sabbath is 
not confined to labourers and men of 
business, that day so sacred in its origin, 
has become to muny, the season oi 
amusement. In Tiew of this fact, doea 
Mjcie'.v as»ain ask, what shall be done ? 
I answer, stop tlr- man -j/ pleasure. 
Nothing is more unreasonable than hit 
conduct— nothing more subversive ot 
order. To gratify one man, shall the 
devouen of hundreds be interrupted, 
nnd the laws of the Suite surrendered ! 
O my country ! flur degeneracy has noi 
come to this I There is yet efficacy in 
tho law, and ability to execute in the 
people. Let it be known then, in every 
town, ihat the man, who habitually ytn 
| a ;es the laws resperctrrg the Sabboln- 
is not a candidate lor suffrage to any 
office, and is net respected as a moral 

It is not too much to say, in any 
society, end in any place, that men, 
who consult profit or pleasure at the 
expense of law, aie not qualified, as 
moral men, for uffice ; because, if their 
oath will not bind them to observe the 
laws in one instance, where is the as- 
surance to society, that it willi in any 
instance, when gain or pleasure enrocs 
in contact with duty. But there re- 
mains a more powerful reason lor exe- 
cuting the laws respecting the Sabbath 
than has been mentioned, a Holy God 
has never failed to inflict punishment 
lor the profanation of that day. For 
violating the Sabbath, among other sins 
which were committed with it God gave 
tbe Isrealitcs to liequent captivity, und, 
finally to destruetion. Not to mention 
other examples equally admonitory, I 
appeal to ttic religious sensibility of 
my fellow-citizens, whether many ot 
the political evils, which, at present, 
afflict oar land, would not, in probability, 
have slept in silence, had the iuen ( who 
manage our publi*- concerns, been duly 
attentive to the institutions of Religion. 
If so, what individual who loves his 
country is not prepared to assist in 
censing the Sabbath to be e-bsd'ved. 

We boast of our supcriour attainments 
in literature and ill life, but the fact 
cannot be denied, we have degenerated 
from the religion and virtues of our 
fathers. It has been said, theirs was 
the a^e of superstition, and this is the 
aire of reason. Were we to ad^iii the 
whole of this extraordinary p i.nion, 
we should be justified in giving this re- 
mark in supplement, theirs wa? the age 
of prosperity, and this is the age ol 
adversity. What of happiness then 
has been gained by the improveoie t ? 
Surely nothing. But theirs was not tl'te 
ag»? of superstition, I speak with rev I 
enco, it was the age of piety. Reli^i m 
was not in exile, and tho day of Christ 
i»as not profaned. My coun'ry ! ins 
that period happy I Fellow-Citizen* ! 
What motives are presented to rouse 
us from indifference to the observation 
if the Sabbath 1 Let this institution o»- 
'lejjlccted — let its privilege* be oblitera- 
ej, and your posterity will be pagans. 
Gloomy wretchedness will stand, in the 
fay of luturity,and call this age "Father." 
If there be a righteous provide nce f whicti 
no one will venture to deny ; a faiorroa- 
liiii is inseparable from the expectation 
>f better days. The noble interests of 
'"digion, of sneiety and of man will call 
for vtGiaous and immediate exertion !

I believe my friend from New-Hamp. 
$ire, (Mr. WM'.)m*)i " a » S°» e t° the 
very extent of the beV-when he has.ed- 
mitted, that you tmgh.i possibly, by this 
provision gain an accession of one thou- 
sand to your armies. ."• ler th.? present 
Ihw minors enlist. All that Worth"! ess 
descrintion of young_ men, who have re- 
ceived their education in the tippling 
ihopb, and the brothels, now go into 
your armies, and nobody rcclatms them ; 
because the camp is their proper ele- 
ment. Beyond this description, which 
you now have, if you ^ain an annual 
thousand! you will exceed even your 
own expectation. And for this paltry 
gain, you are about to adopts principle, 
not only in the opinion bf many uncon- 
stitutional, but in practice, jeopardizing 
he good ordei of the community, vio- 
lating contracts, disturbing the sabred 
i n;hts of natural affectihn, and all the 
felicities of domestic lift. My honora- 
ble friend fr«m N, H. hai characterized 
the prrj-reedii'g as Jolly- 1 pronounce it 
a measure combining utlong characters 
m weakness and violence, of folly and 
as mess. 

My friend from N. H. has said, that if 
you can enlist apcrenltces in defiance of 
their mastei s you may also deliver the 
slave from his servitude. Is he not lit- 
■rally correct ? Why may you not en- 
list ihe slave ? Because by the munici- 
pal laws ol 'the Si ale f,, he has not the 
power to contract. The same reason 
precisely, forbids the enlisting of mi- 
nors and apprentices. If you can re- 
move the incapacity from the latter, so 
you may from the Former. Will y«u 
aay that the master has a propf rty in the 
^rvir.ea of his slave I HoW lias he 
that property ? Solely by a State law. 
By the sumc law the master has a pro- 
P'.-r'y in the service ol the apprentice, 
thelfathcr in the minority ol bio »wn — 
And if you may abrogate the law and 
violate tht property in the one case, 
you may do it in the other. Nor, i^ 
there any distinction arising from the 
duties of native allegiance. I hive al- 
ready stated, that the sovereign powers 
of government, in this country, are di 
vided. Part r*st with the States and 
part with tne union. With the latter, 
rest those powers delegated in the con» 
siitution; all the remainder are in the 
Stales, or the people. The natural ai- 
legiauce of the people is due 10 the 
Slate sovereignties. And that allegi- 
ance only is due to the led e misgovern - 
ment which is promised by ine consti- 
tution. In that constitution, the minor 
i>tis promised no military duty, but that 
which is to be perfnl'metl in the militia. 
In the militia he in ,y be forced into 
the service of the U Stales, «toVsxe< 
.•uts the laws, suppress insurrections, 
and repel invasion." Beyond this you 
cannot force him into your servtoc. — 
Nor can yoo entice him by any contract 
not sanctioned by his lather, guardian 
or master. 

An honorable gentleman from Massa- 
chusetts, (Mr, Ward), had spoken ol 
the domestic happiness, the social and 
maternal feelings which this act would 
violate — the heart-reading scenes that 
must occur, when the youth, who in a 
moment of feverish ambition or giddy 
revelry! had enlisted, should be drag- 
goo from the embraces of his mother 
and sisters to the dangers of h Canadian 
war. Gentlemen who favor the hill, 
have all appeared to me to treat this 
subject with too mueli levity- 
Sir, the best feelings of our natures, 
those strong family affections, which 
Form at once the Ligaments ai.d felicities 

as he was departing on a marauding 
expedition : "bring back this shiHd or 
he brought back upon it.** 

I trust I am not insensible to senti- 
ment or actions of heroism. But, when- 
ever I read this address, an emotion ve- 
ry different from admiration, has always 
been prevalent in my mind. 

The address is from a mother to a r.on. 
Where were those claims of nature, 
those strong natural affections which 
cling to the offspring with a force strong- 
er than death I None of then resided 
in the bosom of that Spartan mother. 
Sir, I have often wondered, when I have 
lieacd the sentiments and cooily-i cf 
the Spartan Aristocracy, cited for the 
imitation of a Christian people. 

They were a race, faithless, cruel and 
barbarous — hateful and terrible to tne 
rest of mankind. All their maxims 
were unjust and selfish, and all their 
institutions modelled on principles ol 
immoral tendency ; calculated, only, to 
extend the empire of ignorance, deso- 
lation and revenge. 

Why will not the honorable gentle- 
man proceed, and cite from the same 
polluted source, examples for the imi. 
tution of youth? One gren object of 
Spartan policy was to accomplish her 
youth in the useful science of thieving. 
It become a Spartan maxim, that to steal 
adroitly, was meritorious i but to be de- 
tected was crime and ignominy. And 
no doubt, many a Spartan mother has 
charged her son upon the eve of some 
petty larceny expedition, " return strtr- 
cesslul and undetected, or return a

if social life, cannot be violated by any 
government with impunity- And thosr 
measures which cause the tears of a 
whole nation to flow, cannot comport 
with its interests, its honor, or its du- 
rable prosperity. But these, it aeems, 
will be the tears of women. 

The age of Chivalry may have de- 
parted ; but the nature and ufl'ections of 
man remain unchanged. And the annals 
of the world will prove, that, when by 
oppression and injustice tears arc wrung 
fi im females yes, it never can be long 
before they mingle with the blood ol 
.an. Let no legislator forget, that ao 
-.! '-^ly arc thu social affections knit to- 
elnTr, so well are our feelings and jn- 
erests woven in the very frame ol so- 
lely, that the arm of the strong can 
never long be wanting to avenge the 
w.ongs and prntect ihe rights of the 
weak. While on this subject, I would 
s iy a word Upon the refined lesson which 
has been just rea8 by the gentleman 
from Kentucky, to his countrywomen. 
He has recited, fur their imitation, the 
address of a Spartan mother to her son, 

female timidity may assume defiance, 
and with her own hand, arm the warri- 
or tor battle. But no American mother 
can urge her son to the invasion ol Ca- 
nada — to carry misery to those whom 
the spirit of Christianity lias made her 
sisbirs. If that dreadful work of deso- 
lation roust go on, let the only agent be 
man. And if he falls in the battle, deny 
not to his mother, his wile, his sister, 
the holy office of mourning his fall and 
bedewing his corse with tears. 

The same honorable gentleman has 
comrlained of the assertion* so often 
made by us, that this war has produced 
ruin to our conntty, and stained with 
disgrace our national character. He 
has declared the charge unfounded.— 
The Navy has preserved our drowning 
honor. The late campaigns on the Ni- 
agara has covered a nmltiiude of stains. 
Apart from these, he seemed to admit, 
there had been disgrace ; and he declar- 
ed he would pour the whole torrent of 
his indignation upon those who had pro 
djced it. " But who- he asked had pro 
duccd it ? Who wer 
our misfortunes and our disgraces ? — '■ 
Those who bad declared and directed 
the war, or those who had opposed the 
declaration and and at all times remon- 
strated against its continuance." 

Sir, the question is important ; let it 
be now decided. Who are the guilty 
authors of the disgrace on our name 
and all the misfortunes of our country ? 
Are they tho men, who before the war 
waB declared, spoke of its dreadful im- 
policy j pourtrayed the defenceless con- 
ditisn of the country, pointed daily to 
the weakness of your means, warned 
you, that your frontiers would be swept 
by savage desolation, and your cities 
destroyed ; that your States would be 
exposed to subjection, your union to 
dissolution, and almost in tho agony of 
despair, invoked you to save your wives, 
your children, your country from the 
sufferings and evils of the conflict 1 Or 
are ibey the men, who forgetting all the 
sacred duties which bound them topeace, 
buoyed up by the transitory huzzas of a 
mob, vain with a little brief authority, 
hurried along by the fatal influence of 
party, without necessity, and without 
mercy, plunged their country, defence- 
less and naked, into that lake of blood, 
where she is yet swimming t 

Tho men,' who resisted even usto 
death,all yoar weak and wicked schemes 
of commercial coercion, whicb spread 
distress over the land, and conducted 
directly to this war T Or, these wbo 
day after day.andyear after year.adopted 
a course of oppressive and ruinous policy, 
a succession of weak, yet suicidal mea- 
sures, from which, even war seemed 
almost a relief ? 

Who are the guilty authors of our 

ruin ? 

Those, who to the last moment, even 
in the »ery brink of the bloody gull, still 
pointed to the white Aug of peace and 
prosperity, which Washington had 
•reeled ? Or those, who rudely tore it 
dt>wn, and hoisted the crimson banner 
in its stead ?. 

Who are the fcCilty authors ol our

Upon*vhom. sir, shall the good gen*

Review thrse facts and tell me who 
in truth are the authors of their wide 
spreid ruin, this black disgrace which 
shrouds the American name ? 

Let me not be misundr istood. No 
doubt; our gallant frigates have gilded 
ihe national escutcheon with the brigh- 
est beams or glory. To the unbemlim* 
spirit and i-allant conduct of the Amen- 
•ran soldier no man is mure- sensible;, 
Our armies in the north, during the nit 
summer, have fought with an heroic 
bravery worthy the best days of our re- 
volution. Their gallant leaders ore en- 
titled to 'every meed of applause.' But 
all this resolution, and all this gallantry 
but sluouds the cabinet conductors bf 
the war in tenfold darkness. 

How have thebravery, and theresolu* 
'.ion of our armies been applied ? To 
accomplish the unhallowed schemes of 
ambition— to carry desolation and death. 
into a country, feeble, and pacific, and] 
always the friend of our republic, m til 
you forced her to become our -nemy. 
And how, even in this work of Ufjust 
desolation, how have they been directed? 
In a manner weak and fi olish beyond 
example. Look to the Niagara. H< v* 
has the life of man been mado the sport 
of imbecility and ambition \ ! What 
hecatombs of human victims have breri 
sacrificed, in an unmeaning contest for^ 
a Canadian fortress, of no usr to our 
country, finally abandoned as worthless. 




The fields of Chippewa, of Cornwall* 
of Bridgcwater, and of Erie, aro still 
smoking with human blood, crying io> 
heaven for vengeance. 

O sir. the authors of this wat* cannot 
jthors of | be guiltless. I tell them in the finally* 
of retribution, when the rulers el options 
shall be summoned to answer ai the 
dread tribunal, lbs disgrace, ihe misery, 
the roin and the blood which now 
covers this land, will lie with the weight 
of a mountain on their souis. 

And what is our guilt \ We warned, 
we conjured you to shun the ruin of this 
unnecessary, this guilty war. When, 
you despised all our remonstrances, andl 
made the 1 fatal plunge, we itill invoked 
you to turn your thoughts on peace. 
But when wo found all your armies sent 
on plans of conquest, we appealed to 
heaven for our rectitude.and boldly 'ook 
our stand ; conscious that no blc could 
await our country, more dreadful than 
the guilt of unjust invasion, and an alli- 
ance with the I'rcnsh usurper. Could, 
we unite in plans, which we verily be- 
lieved had such ends in view ? Could 
wo vote for measures to suppoi t a war 
of conquest, which, »n our souls we. 
loathed) as unjust, dishonest, impolitic ; 
We saw the monstrous Tyrant of F. unce 
standing like a Colossus in the midr 
of Europe, beating her liberties to the 
earth, and frowning upon all our free 
institutional so hostile in their nature, to 
his despotic aoul, and bis views of uni- 
versal empire. We saw the first strug- 
gle, for the independence of mankind 
about commeocing.and its issue involved 
in dreadful doubt. 

The wresth of Canadian conquests, 
whether it be woven of the laurel, oy 
the cypress, whether it beam with jus- 
tice and glory, or be dyed in the bind;

The Lnnd Tax is going through lh«

amount of the lust tax], not only f ■ ■?»

As It now stands.lhe tax ie to beannu .1 
and perpetual, ji/j to ihe amount of six 

A permanent land tax of six millions] 
a year is thus iikoly io be one of t'i» 
consequences, and certainly not one rtf 
the worst consequences, of this mU-i a- 
ble War. — The sum assigned io New- 
Hampshire is one hundred and ninety* 
three thousand, five hundred and eighty- 
six dollars, and eoventy-four cents. 

Bills have passed the House of It - 
preaentatives for increasing the carrt «c 
tax, the tax on domestic distilled spir- 
its, the license tax, fite. tic. The fol- 
lowing new taxes are also imposed, viz. 
A tax on Furniture, 

Do. Saddle fc carriage Horses, 
Do. Pig Iron, 
Bar Iron, 
Hollow Ware, 

Saddles and Bridles, 
Strong Beer, 

Snuff and Tobacco, 
■nd also incrcaatng the rales of postage 
on letters snd paper*. 

It is not t-iisy to say with any exact- 
ness it-hai «i" be the amount of tfn-s: 
Taxes to he collected in N. Hampshire 
withintlie year. A great rmny of the 
'nxalilc articles, manufactured in other 
States, a^e consumed in N. Hampshire; 
so that the ciiizena of that State will ae. 
toally pay much more than is collected 
within tlie Stat". It is contemplated 
lh3t all l he war taxes will produce twer- 
ly-two millions a year. You can easily 
calculate by the proportion Of population. 
Whnt will be paid by New-Hinij.s'i re. 

Exclusive of v. hat is paid on*nTticIea 
mjnufoctored in oilier States, find col- 
lected there, I should suppose that (he 
whole amount of continental taxes, rti, 
rert and indirert, to be paid by New- 
Hampshire, next year, and collecled 
within the State, cannot he less^than 
four hundred thousand dollars. How 
the people Mill find the means or pay- 
infj these tuxos, I know not. Indeed, a* 
to collecting twenty-two millions of tax- 
es in the United States, in one year, un- 
der present circumstances, in my opin- 
ion it cannot be done. The eotfhtry has 
not the ability to pay such an amount. 
Il )s out of the question. 

Some of the Southern S'ates, cspe- * 
cially Virginia and Georgia, have alrea- 
dy pas-.ed what they rail " siofi lav/ty" 
to prevent the recovery of debts ; be- 
cause the people are not able to pay 
their debts. 

All the Banks in this quarter, as you 
know, have long since ceased lo psV 
iheir note*. Of course their notes are 
fist depreciating. They are now at 
least twenty per cent bHow par at this 
place, and daily growing worse. 

Indeed, sir, I eee nothing but Peace, 
which will save us. I am perfectly sat- 
isfied, that tho Government cannot go 
on with Ibis War, without a change of 
it 9 measure* — and I do not believe that 
it is in the power of mortals to inspire 
it with a resoluiinn lo make ami change 
Whatever. 1 doubt whether the his'tiry 
"/ the world furnishes an eramfilr nf 
equal fierverxenesB and delusion.

A writer in the list Gazette on the 
■utyec: of this disorder, which has 
made us appearance in our nci K hW- 
liootl says : — 

■j "This Typhus Fever, (or as it iii m - 

proptrly called *fiottcd)t\* of latc e j. 
dcmical, or more K eneni||y, prevalent in 
certain scatiuns of oar country. The 
cause of its prevalence i, like that of all 
ether epidemics, owiirg to the peculiar 
state of the atmosphere and the predis- 
position ol our bodies to receive it, 
thcretore, wliutvcr breathes this com- 
mon, .md cold atmospaete (its purcnt), 
is liable in agrcaUr or less degree 10 
receive it. Hut it ia not contagious or 
ogmmunicatsd from one to ihu other, aa 
••jaf^coplt: generally are fearful and believe. 
These who are moat liable to it, and al- 
most those alone, are who fatigue them- 
selves by too frequent and assiduous 
patchings with tho aid-.. The intem- 
perate, and who violently oxert them- 
selves or carelealy expose ihemselves 
to the leather, the young and infirm 
fcnmlos who go too thinly clothed, and 
wear cobweb shoes and stockings. 
JPeople who live differently are seldom 
sick with this disease. 

'■ I's name and nature are great de- 
■biluv and derangement and pain of the 
"hen! and_ynsbs, Sec. It however attack* 
5ti many forms. Its general manner of 
.in.,. :. in this vicinity, is with a greater 
or Jess pain in the head and limbs, op- 
pression, and sometimes a sickness at 
The stomatk, cold limbs, i he pulsv some, 
times slow, then quick and small, de- 
lected countenance and great gencrul 
debility. It somctinicfc appears here, in 
deceitful hums, such as the pulmonic 
lover, the pleurisy, calarrh,and » ' L .■ n. 
lion in tho head. In other places it is 
recorded as apprarinir like the eholic, 
«ar aclie,palpitation of th heart,nervous 
fcrad ache, I thargy, palsy, and some- 
times by a pain or singular sensation in 
some extreme part of the body, and 
fiavels thence, in a straight course to* 
W-i r d% the head. 

" Ir thasc symj'loros do not prove the 
exigence of the typhus fever alone, I 
think they pai take of it so much us to 
make it necessary for every physician to 
be guided by the typhus when he treats 
these complaints. Almost every reign- 
in IT tpidemicassjmes a monarchy over 
every other common disease. 

" The spats that appnar in this ajis- 
ajase are merely occidental. They may 
perhaps indicate greater malignancy, or 
the morbid action may be mote concen- 
trated upon the lar - r blood-vcss Is or 
cutanous^ience 'heae petechial spot*. 
" However the lile oi tne patient de- 
pends wholly upojn an early and proper 
treatment. If thft is strictly atwnded

t> Every person who may ba attacked 
in either of the ahove forms that have 
occured in this vicinity ought to be got 
into a gentle perspiration. For Aria 
purpose they will put their fe»l for fif 
teen ar twenty minutes into warm Water 
os may be tolerable, (salt water is best). 
They should be kept in bed, under evory 
Circumstance which can ensure warmth,

« As this stage or the disease, regards 
only the practitioner, I shell mention 
nothing more than a few things that I 
tiavu found uniformly to succeed when 
properly and early administered. Stim- 
nUnls and tonics should be usod as lib- 
erally as tho patient will bear and tho 
case require. The patient, should be 
kept in a comfortable roora.oecasionslly 
■ventilated, sweating now should be 
dropped as it debrlitatea. Any wander-

WmWs preferable as its effects are 
wore lasting. Sornclim«3 Fowler's 
a^iociijlsnlinion may be given in it. Oc- 
cusioPiwy the body maybe rubbed with 
warm vinegfc.--', sometimes blisters are 
aecessary.but not when they irritate and 
debilitate. All preparations of opium are 
excellent. Opium, calomel and cam- 
phor in pills preferable. Gentle emetics 
ire sometimes requisite. Wellseasoned 
bmihs should be freely given without 
fjlid meat. 

« Bleedings and repeated or drastie 
cathartics are highly dangerous and 
fatal. Many have been hurried to their 
-Kiives being kept in uncomfortable cold

THE siispenaion of Hperic payments 
bv a ".real part of the most consider 
ablo llanka in the United Stut^s, and 
among ihciruhotto in wbiclube husinoas 
of the Treasuiy, has been transacted, 
lias rendered it impossible to apply, us 
'lerelofirc, Iftorrica in one pari ol the 
•ountty, to the payment of demand* on 
the Treaaury lt> another. Il haa ren- 
dered it impnaaible to tranafer, in 
specie, monies belonging to the Trea- 
sury in New-York, and to the South of 
that place, to Boston, to be there applied 
to the payment uf the public debt.— 
Tho Treasury possesses no lunda In.

made to obtuin funds in that shape huw

exist, except in Treasury Noiea ; the 
medium in which all, or nearly all, the 
taxos andduiies receivable by iho Troa-
